During winter in the colder provinces of China, life revolved around the kang, a heated brick platform that household members would sit or recline upon. Placed on top of the kang, low tables provided a convenient surface for dining, drinking tea, or playing games.

This early 20th-century kang table is elaborately decorated on all sides with painted floral scrollwork and geometric meanders. The top is decorated with finely carved stone and lacquer inlay of ancient bronzes, scholars' objects, and vases bearing fruits and flowering branches. The carvings are inlaid onto a slightly recessed tabletop and protected by glass for use as an everyday surface. Beautifully crafted with intricate detail, this painted table looks striking in modern interiors as a statement-making coffee table or end table.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
